Pronunciation

Because Bahá’í Faith came from the Middle East, similarly to Judaism, Christianity and Islam, a lot of the terminology has origins in the languages of the region, such as Arabic and Farsi. This page was put together to assist English speakers with pronunciation of some common term, found in the Bahá’í Writings.
